The Other Side of Glamour

If Happiness is water,i wish i could get a soak of it.But it isn't.Long ago,when i was a little kid in school days,I use to be infact the first culprit to object people saying,"Money is the root cause of all the evils".No I cried,its a disgusting starkly annoying phrase.Tell me how many people can survive without money.If you don't have it,you even have not enough confidence to face a crowd.I use to say Tagore's famous prose,"where the mind is without fear,head is held high"and where the world is without money,head is always towards earth.I grew up,always looking to be someone surrounded by island of wealth.Money to me can be everything,it talks,it makes you bold,it gives you power,fame ,name ,popularity,relationship,what else nameless things.
But today,my perspective towards wealth has totally changed.Even if the world becomes a little place and a competitive one,I would be brave enough to not crave or go after wealth.Just a place to walk and little money to survive would be my contented assets.But let me justify so that you would not mistaken me and say,"then please deposit all your money into my account"or would be saying,you must be Janchubsempa.I m not.
In a crowded city like Thimphu,dominated by lust and desire for wealth,inner Happiness is just a sack of air.People have all the sorts of facilities,infrastructure and modern architectures.Its in early morning in a small,yet reknowned temple like changangkha,located amidst a hill,which i call a little mountain,you wake up and a glimpse of scented pine in the early dawn,along with people of much contented minds and of older age,you feel life is much peaceful up there.Its a rare occassion.Health has become one of the serious issue in our populated city.Its atleast good that when you come for a physical exercise,you automatically gets connected with mother nature,and then you realize how beautiful and peaceful when our travelling mind gets controlled by a little spiritual and breath taking sceneries.Its otherwise call a happines,though for a short term.
What i have observed through hearings and of my own study is that,when you have enough wealth,sometimes its natural that we forget one of the most important priority of life,our inner happiness.I firmly believe,of course people need certain percentage of money to survive.Especially with friend,relatives,life in Thimphu is bit challenging for individuals who live independently.Today you visit friend's new born baby,tomorrow its someone's relative cremation rites,day after tomorrow,somewhere someone gets promoted to higher post.Then comes your electric power consumption,water charges,telephone bills,Tv rent,house owner running after you,your relatives need some amount from you to purchase a land somewhere in babesa.
On the other side,when you have handsome possession,you feel like having more.Its not a criticism but a concern that I have observed very few wealthy people tend to spend life in a very peaceful manner.Sharing is loving,when they tend to gain more they also become conscious that they have to surrender everything once the icy hands of death holds and grab them,they must leave behind everything ,including people to whom they are so attached.Most of us tend to lose the true sense of happiness.We always want to make our sons and daughter face up the world with much wealth,thereby we lose health to gain more and more.I m sure,if an individual karma or what sometimes called 'Lungten hasn't been inscribed on one's forehead',the possessions gathered by parents on uncle or aunts will not lead us to successful trail.Even in business,some people flourish like anything,while some even though clever and knowledgeable fail at the most.I m sure its always a matter of past's path that lead us to our destined dreams.Some successful in businness making,some in politics,some in relation making,some in problem solvings,negotiation,its after all individual's uniqueness and karmic actions that define us in distint ways.
In this fast moving world,a balance between materialism and spiritual connection is utmost an important philosophy inorder to channel a happiness in one's mind.An excessive wealth possession creates chaos and family troubles,even at worst leading to court cases and enemity even among the family members from great grand parents to their future generations.An individual is born with thier own kind of spoon written according to karmic justice and good deeds of the past.Our sons and daughters fate cant be predicted with our own belongings.Someone can be rich overnight,but he cant stand there longer if he isn't destined to become.Happiness is just a simple concept,when you feel within that you are satisfied with the world,and you know that you are very fortunate of existence,when you cant stop making someone's day,a good turn,inspite of your whatever conditions you are in and a smile on someone's face,you will earn the credit,thats the contentment not even medicine can give you for long term.
An educated higly learned husband,sends his wife for a degree course in abroad at his own expense.She comes up with good knowledge ,a degree and work experience,earns much better than her husband.Now she pays the credit by putting a divorce case.What happened to her,she meets someone much wealthier than her ex husband.Modern society had changed a lot.You can even desigh your own life's lab.But how long it would take a seed of happiness
to germinate and fully grow into long branches.
Some are forced by circumstances,some by intense desires,while most of us fail to architect happiness for our own good.In Thimphu,we build strong and good walls for our own security from neighbour.We don't want to interact with people nearby.We travel in luxurious cars.We dont want to walk.We pollute air,the environment with our junk deposits.We get introduced to different varieties of modern diseases such as cancer,gastritis,mental stresses,ulcers,piles,asthmas,tb,obesity,HIV aids.We want to have more late night partys,where we can breath fresh carbondioxide and carbonmonoxide.We dont want to unnecessarily spent time on true love,we lust for sex.We want to have more gamblings,dont want to spend time with our own children.We marry one wife,and finds a mistress somewhere.We become corrupt and dont mind for sending to jail.We return to our cold graves with dissatisfaction and regrets that would even haunt our spirits.
Even rural places have been affected with air of glamour.Most of agricultural land are now being sold like hot cakes,for exchange with Santafes,Prados,or Tucson,for the sake of construction of resorts,5stars,and private buildings.What will we eat if all our food sources are being cut from India one day.The root of happiness dies owing to lack of extreme side effects. I wish i had a son who can become a good monk,meditating and practising the dharma,while helping his old parents enlighting the light of happiness through mind controlling.But thats just a dream,i wont cry for it,because it would also be destined to deserving only.
In the end life is beautiful and i m satisfied,what i had felt i could atleast express in my little way.May your life be showered with happiness through your own reflections and shadows.If there isnt a shadow then i guess its high time to research the path we travel by.

from plucking stars to shedding's misery is yet life's valuable poetry

"If the only place where i could see you is in my dream,then i would sleep forever,"well more than that,what else, i would pluck a star for you,and plant a beautiful rose in sahara,script your name on the colors of rainbow....
hehe love has gone so much advanced for now.Just like our small country getting rapid urbanisation,from oral proposals to blue ink and white paper touching love letters,from electronic mail to sms,love cards,valentine greetings,cute gifts,roses,dinners,breath taking songs,partying,taking ride along sangaygang and lover's point,late long hour night calls,a chat on and match meetings,what more all our films now are depicting the definition of love.
love is in the air everywhere.Heart is one of the magical organ,beautifully embedded inside the body.If handled with care just like money,it would be worth while,but on contrary,if mishandled,it would create a disaster.There are unique individuals who beautifully potrays all those happenings of love,the betrayals,trust,in a much spicy and thought provoking tales.
Yet Someone searches in bhutan times,"deki where are you,m sorry for my mistake",please call back to me and pick up the phone.Lonely hearts,"beautiful girl wants to date a tall handsome guy",please contact this number.I don't know,but its always true,love can happen anywhere.But i wonder how many people really value true love.
Now i must be true also there are also lots of impacts,when right meets a wrong.I see people not being true to words.Fake promises,thats why,modern love is bitterly sweet,much faster than bullet trains.I wonder how many people really keep true promises.for me,"i miss you sounds much better than,"i love you".i don't know how far you believe.But its however an individual's perspective.
Now lets come to concrete idea.From plucking stars to shedding tears,unheard cries,yet within someone's thought,its a valuable poetry.Life isn't perfect is old acronym,but it also makes a part of life's history unerased in individual's mind. Life goes on with much lessons and bold personality.From fragile mind and heart to experienced professional" betrayed one",yet you never lose who you are,and you would never fall down without your own consentment.From sugar heart to spicy individuals,you have learnt greater chapter of love and now inside your mind you have enough default vision of detecting a decent and defined love bird.That's you,The power of one.This will be another chapter and topic that every one carries ahead.
love is a beautiful art,and it always needs a right artist.Every artist has their own way of expressing their is kid's fun game for children,an accompany and a refuge shelter,Love is a burden and hurdle to school going students,distraction to an academic performance,a matter of chance in finding freedom from studies for college mates,a second chance test for bachelor's personality before marriage,if a married couple seeks another Mr or mistress,its another story infact part II of life,Its about complicated heart.Its an indication of your heart controlling your mind.So better be watchful,ofcourse its also applicable but its more disheartening.
Animals in the nature too have a strong sense of love relationship.At the end what i have found is ,"its not by falling in love with someone,that ruins your life,but when you keep going with things in right track,its a balanced life,that one need not turn back to life with regrets,but with sense of contentment that you have made someone's day with good smiles on their face.So my moral is love the people who treat you right,forget the ones who do not.
Have a dedicated love,truth and trust.Thats it..cheer up!!

Another Day-The Wrong Downpour

Perhaps there might be some holes in the corner of sky.The stitches need to be carried out.Its been heavy down pour in bhutan.The rain started from last night and now it would continue till tomorrow midday according to Norwegian Meterological site.Its much foggy along the way especially when you get into a car and take a drive.I m sure the river might have changed its color somehow.School students along the way soaked with cold bath.While most people carry umbrella,its been muddy along the paths.Its 3:48pm and still looks like the sun gone beyond the horizon and night spreading her black garment.I was thinking that the blessed rainy day would be the last rain but it turn out to be the different one.I m sure this wrong time rain has not much significance to do with our farmers,except for Hydropower generation,the country's revenue .
In Paro,along the vales,most of the farmers have initially started the harvesting work.Fortunately,it was just beginning and carried out in smaller portion.Last time it was the H1N1,then the Earth Quake,then stormy winds followed by downpour.But lets hope we prepare for everything.Lets be aware all the time.Lets not lose faith in our beliefs.our forefathers have been brought up through harsh and turbulent atmosphere battling every hardships despite of having no modern technologies.Its now upto us whether our set of beliefs are slowly getting extinct as we step into another era of less of beliefs and more of scientific practicals.

Autumn Kiss on my Cheek

One thing,God's beautiful art,a paranomic creation is a change in seasons.Its a time that heals everything after all,good or bad.With rising and setting sun,every moment,i feel Autumn and winter are nearing.No matter,this winter atleast let it be a humble wish, a snowfall to wipe away all the misforutnes of next fiscal year.I wish to see our snow capped mountains kissed by glossy lips of golden sun rays.
Guess m not going so fast into future.Its Autumn now,getting colder day by day.Atleast no heavy rain.No more landslides along Phuntsholing-Thimphu High way.Much Better,we hear no H1N1 or otherwise swine flu.In Paro,apple buds stormed by hailstones last spring,but atleast it turned out to be good harvest at the end.We wish democracy gets in smooth ride.Though villages in far east torn from disasters and still our mates in haunted dreams,i know time after all would heal slowly.

Life is quite unpredictable at times,but all we got to do is prepare for everything in hand.Life can be sometimes miserable anywhere at anytime.Its a time,that one cannot put an astrologer behind.Its also a time that itself heals gently atlast.
With onset of autumn,paddy harvest is almost knocking the door.Lets wish there be a peaceful and succesful harvest for all our hardworking farmers around the country.Its a nation's background and pride and a dream of food self sufficiency that must prevail througout while eradicating poverty.
A beautiful season of fall,you would see all the earth carpeted with golden floor.On the evening twilight,watch the sunset below the horizon.As you walk take a deep gentle breath,a cool air would blow through our troubled face.Its an indication of princess autumn healing all your tiring journey's wound.I call it a KISS on my cheek.

A Garden within my Mind

Early in the morning cool hush,At around 5:00am ,its been my regular routine for around months now,i rush up from the warmth of my blanket,taking a quick glimpse through window panes,my first sight is towards skipping clouds through the heavenly abode of Phajoding,its been my healer,i feel relieved of day's hard work,the busy traffic,noisy tooting of increasing vehicle population,before i face off dirts and haunting dreams from my innocent face,i peep up once,then take a deep sigh and a fresly filled oxygen into my lungs.Its my perfect moments and best part of my day.
I see no fields,only incresing number of construction building colonies along the roads,cross roads every where creating human path confusion.I get every kind of fast and junk foods,i get access to 24 hours internet,i get avail to all modern facilities, a good caring girl friend.I still find one thing missing,my sweet home.Its saturday,then i woke up,took breakfast,rushed to my village back in Paro.Yes Thats my medicine,my healer and the only cure to my troubled mind.
Along the waves of golden autumn paddy,i m lost never to be found.Its my fragile mind travelling through all the greenery and golden scenes.I feel the smell of my home.i m brought up here,I want to die here.
I searched through all the mountains,looking for birds to sing with,sparkling brooks feeling lost and shy with my girlish smile.Turquiose pachu river dancing amidst the green vales.Willows slowly turning to yellow.When you feel the hush air and smell rosy scented breathe,a sound of cicada,its my favourite moments and i get drunk in extreme happiness.It has reason of perfect mixture and blend of history eversince my childhood.
I cry late at night ,in the middle of dreams longing for my beloved has been my perfect companion,and you may not not the reason,its complicated at times to explain things that create impact and maggical ripple inside your travelling mind.only you feel it,and let it be a secret.i get hold of this beautiful landscapes,Its a garden within my mind.i ll take a snap of it and show to you all.
still today on weekends,i go and search for homely air,at the end i wish my home to be forever a heavenly abode like today,untouched by human,no cars,no junk deposits,no interferences,perfect solitude and ideal place for dreamers of meditation.Its what i call my soul healer,a secret within myself and you.Its a small wooden comfy home locked inside woods.
